Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Modern scholarship knows better? LULZ
Each one of the assertions at the site you supplied are nothing more than that. Bare assertions. There is no archaeology shown there.

You're simply wanting to believe that because figures like Josephus and others say it is so, it must be so.

Josephus wrote of Heracles more than the Jesus.

Using your method, we should accept that Heracles must have been a real figure, too.

I suspect the only portions of Josephus' writings and the others supplied at the site you linked above are the writings which support your mythology.

Not the other mythologies.

Why? Because you don't believe them to be true.

But if you did believe in Heracles=)))>>>You would be using the writings of Josephus to support your assertions that Heracles was a real historical figure.

You would also be accusing me of being "Anti- Heracles".

Your tactics along with the tactics of ''modern scholarship'' is selective and therefore discredited. They do not look at all the evidence. They establish a timeline and on that basis reject the Exodus. A TIMELINE FOR THE EXODUS HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED!
The Exodus doesn't show up in any timeline.

You're missing that very important detail.

The only place that the Exodus is said to have happened is in the bible.

Outside of the bible, no matter the timeline or era being looked at, it cannot be found.
They also reject the evidence based on anti supernatural bias.
Supply unbiased evidence of the supernatural.
Like you they evidence select based on fixed criteria
By that you mean evidence that can be substantiated and verified, compelling not because you want to believe it, but because that is what the evidence shows.
That means you are not interested in the truth of the matter but only in the propagation of you revisionist anti supernatural agenda.
That means I'm interested in nothing but the truth of the matter. The evidence isn't made up.

This is available to everyone.

As far as the supernatural goes, you should supply the unbiased evidence for that.
I would add such tactics are juvenile and shoddy.
Asking you to back up what you say is juvenile and shoddy?

No, I'm being objective.

So far, all you've done in every discussion is protest and jump up and down.

The information you supply is outdated and in error.

If you had something that could be verified or was true, it would be accepted by all parties concerned.

This is why the overwhelming consensus is that the 'Exodus" never happened.

There is no evidence that it ever happened.

You just provided another example to the world of how rude and ugly an atheist is, even while in general conversation.
You became this way because you were probably raised in a world where bible study and prayer have been abandoned or prohibited, or were raised by irresponsible uncaring atheist parents.

Let me know when you have removed the towel. It's plenty hot in there.(In the sauna I mean.)

I believe that it not the point hiding was trying to make.

No. I don't. At least I don't think that humans know all of it. I think that humans are incredibly assumptive & arrogant. We always have been.
I think evolution, as we THINK we know it is today, is absurd. A human bone is stronger than concrete. A human hand has 1,000 miles of nerves in it. A human body has, what, 10 trillion cells in it. And that's just one human. Forget everything else. The odds of evolution happening by random chance is staggeringly high.
You don't understand evolution if you think it's one big crapshoot. As has been said before, you are naive.

Read carefully. Very few what you call true "atheists", the OVERWHELMING percentage just haven't found their niche, whether they are looking for it or not.
Enculturated or not, it is a reality.
The crazies on here will feel those unaffiliated are on their side, that they are winning a war.
What war?
